Editorial Reviews


At long last, Russ Olsen brings his engaging and encouraging style to the Clojure landscape. I wish Getting Clojure had been available when I was learning the language. If you're looking for a smooth transition into Clojure, this is it.
-- Ben Vandgrift, Chief Architect, Oryx Systems Inc.

The book was a joy to read and is highly recommended due to its comprehensive scope and brilliant writing. It also showcases the spirit of the Clojure community: a deeply knowledgeable but also informal, exploratory, no nonsense approach to thinking about software.
-- Tibor Simic, Software Developer, Inge-mark

My favorite sections in the book: In the Wild code that is live and used today. Seeing real code immensely propelled my understanding of the materials, far beyond any contrived examples. I wish I had this book five years ago
-- Nola Stowe, Software Engineer, Condé Nast

Let Russ Olsen's destructuring of Clojure map mind twisting concepts into a promise of your bright future as a capable functional coder.
-- Stefan Turalski, Software Developer, BNP Paribas

The perfect initiation into the world of Clojure.
-- Scott Downie, VP Support and Services, Illumio
